Lyon seeking to offload Nicolas N’Koulou & Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa

Ligue 1 side Lyon will seek to offload central defenders Nicolas N’Koulou and Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa this summer, according to L’Équipe.

Hull City made an offer for the former Marseille man this season, who refused any thought of departure in January. 

Neither individual has impressed and with considerable salaries, OL are seeking to move them on.

In terms of replacements, Lyon are watching Mamadou Sakho’s situation closely at Liverpool, although with the Reds reportedly seeking £30m from Premier League suitors, Les Gones accept that a deal would be very difficult. However, there is a belief that LFC would be willing to lower their asking price to sides seeking to purchase him from abroad. OL have also earmarked Fenerbahce central defender Simon Kjaer as a target in that department.
